a Japanese girl named Yune arrived at Paris with Oscar. she offered to work at his shop, Enseignes du Roy, where Oscar's grandson Claude worked as a blacksmith who made street signs for stores. having different culture, Yune and Claude struggled to get along while learning more about each other. they had to stick together to keep the shop open despite the reducing number of customers. the shop was located at Galerie du Roy, once a popular marketplace but now many shops were closed as technology advances.
the anime was simply beautiful and adorable! it was easy to get absorb into Yune's character, so straightforward and simpleminded that she found even the smallest thing to be an exciting discovery. and despite Claude's headstrong personality, it was absolutely heartwarming to see his relationship with Yune slowly transforming into a tighter bond. most of Yune and her traditional stuff doesn't fit into the France idea, but it was also the uniqueness of these different culture being placed together that caused the awkwardness to be so breathtaking.
